B-mode images of spontaneous mammary tumors enhanced by estimated scatterer parameters

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

An estimation technique was used to estimate the average scatterer diameter and concentration of tissue microstructure. The estimation technique used least squares to fit a line to the measured power spectrum from regions-of-interests (ROIs) in rats with spontaneous mammary tumors. Parametric images were constructed incorporating the scattering estimates. Examination of the estimates inside and outside the tumors showed that the average scatterer diameter might be a good indicator of diseased tissues.
